The "Digital Repositories, Data Curation, and The Cloud" All Alliance
Conference will be held January 28-29, 2010 at the Holiday Inn Select -
Cherry Creek, in Denver, CO.
Join us at the All Alliance Conference on Friday, January 29th for an
exciting day of Cloud-, Data Durability-, and Repository-focused
keynotes offered by Richard Katz, Vice President of EDUCAUSE and
founding director of the EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research (ECAR);
and Thorny Staples, Director of Community Strategy and Alliances and
Director of the Fedora Project of DuraSpace. Panel discussions,
repository application overviews, and demonstration showcases are also
on the agenda to mark the launch of multiple Alliance-supported digital
repository portals at our member institutions!
On Thursday, January 28, 2010, we're hosting a Fedora/DuraSpace
technically-focused "meet-up," led by DuraSpace's Thorny Staples, for
library and campus IT staff, faculty, and stakeholders, and anyone
interested in attending! Topics include an exploration of repository
architecture and functionality, interface strategies, cloud
opportunities, and any direction the participant-driven discussion takes
us! We'll end the afternoon with opportunities to share what's working
and what's challenging data curation-wise at your institutions!
